Shape-, size-, and phase-controlled ZnSe nanostructures were synthesized by thermolysis of zinc acetate and selenourea using liganding solvents of octadecylamine (ODA) and trioctylphosphineoxide (TOPO) at different molar ratios. Materials synthesized in pure ODA resulted in uniform ultranarrow nanorods and nanowires...

Relatively monodisperse and highly luminescent Mn(2+)-doped zinc blende ZnSe nanocrystals were synthesized in aqueous solution at 100 °C using the nucleation-doping strategy. The effects of the experimental conditions and of the ligand on the synthesis of nanocrystals were investigated systematically....
